Reading the book, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Stand Together!” as a family, my husband asks, “What’s the difference between wisdom and knowledge?” Not really asking, per se, but thinking they are one and the same.
“Oh no!” I said, “Wisdom is spiritual and knowledge is technical.”
To which he said, “Oh well then, you’re the wise guy, Leonardo and I’m the smart ass, Donatello.
“Okay, yes!” I said, laughing.
Our son then wanted to know who he was.
I said, “Oh, who do you think you are?”
He looked down at the book and quickly smiled saying, “I’m Raphael the strong one!” He kept reading innocently, “…He has big muscles-and an even bigger attitude.”
My husband and I glanced over at each other, nodding in instant agreement, hiding our chuckles.
“Yes son,” I said, “you are very strong, and funny as well, like Michelangelo!”
A family unit,
Of individual strengths and weaknesses,
Learning from each other,
Standing STRONG together,
And sometimes bent over from a good belly laugh.
Day 25-Word of the day-kinaadman (n.) meaning knowledge, wisdom.
